There are rumours that on devices with tiny NAND (16MB or less, your hAP lite falls into this category) update packages are actually downloaded into RAM (which is low on your device as well). Try to reboot device (some memory might get freed). Do you have any static address lists with large number of members?

Another possibility (which would be actually benefitial for your device) would be to go to individual package installation instead of bundle - which contains a few packages you most probably don't need, such as ipv6 (you disabled it), mpls, hotspot, routing, ... You'll save some NAND space and RAM.

You can do it by downloading "extra packages" for your architecture, then only upload to router packages you really need (system, wireless, dhcp, security, ... perhaps advanced-tools ... read up package descriptions). After selected packages are successfully uploaded, reboot device (it should pick up new packages and upgrade itself).

Thanks for the answer.
Configuration reset.
I reset the configuration many times.
I tried to enable, disable, system packages, no changes occur after a reboot.
They are unchanged as shown in the post above.
This firmware is from the factory.
As soon as it was purchased, an attempt to update the firmware caused a not enough disk space.
Any attempts, including through net-install, result in a not enough disk space.

I guess it's time to ask support@mikrotik.com for advice ...

From original post:
Through net-install the same error.
This sounds weird to me, but let's just assume poster tried netinstall, that it actually succeeded and he can't upgrade to newer ROS afterwards.

Same problem here. Trying to upgrade hap lite to 6.43.12.

The update is 7.4MB.

I have deleted everything from files except for skins that's an empty directory.

Files reports 8.4MiB of 16.0MiB used.

I've restarted the router and tried again.

[admin@nimda] > /tool fetch url=https://download2.mikrotik.com/routeros ... .43.12.npk
status: failed




failure: cannot download: file too large, no space left on disk

Contacting support now.

As I said on some other thread about exactly the same problem, I had to NetInstall it using the Extra packages - that allows you to remove the ones you don't want, so that upgrades will succeed next time.
I Netinstalled 6.43.12 a couple of weeks ago and I upgraded to 6.44 without problems.

1. Make a backup and export, save them on your PC

2. Disable all the packages you can including this:
hotspot
ipv6
mpls
ppp
routing
wireless
advanced tools

3. Reboot

4. Upgrade using only this packages taking them from the all packages zip:
system
security
dhcp

5. Reboot

6. After successful upgrade proceed to upgrade routerboot in system routerboard upgrade

7. Reboot

8. now install the additional packages you need only

Try reducing the DNS cache size, that will free up space

Hi,

this situation is getting worse!

We were told that in the 6.47 version the file size would be reduced, but the opposite is occuring.

It is a stuggle to update these devices, we are now having to downgrade to version routeros-smips-6.32.3 to be able to upgrade, and this old version wipes the password.

All devices with 6.47.4 now only have 8.7 mb free!

This is quite rediculous.

Mikrotik, please, we need a troublefree way to upgrade these devices, imagine having a network with hundreds of these ...........

mine said 7.4MiB is required and only 6.5MiB is free
aside from netinstal is there no solution for this?
not just for hundreds, even only 3 with different location would be troublesome
from 6.47 to 6.47.1 i'm doing netinstall, now? I'm considering other solutions

Question, I've an hAP lite which can't be updated by Packages for few KB missing of free space, I'm going to use extra packages for that avoiding ipv6 and ppp. Should I just upload (drag&drop) into Files the other packages and execute a reboot?

First you disable the packages you don't need (and are sure you don't need!) in the combined package and reboot.
Verify that you are running with only the packages you want.
Then you upload only THESE packages from the all_packages.zip version you want to upgrade, and again reboot.
It should now have separate packages and a little more available space.
